This was following his court date by the way. Read the news then come back to this picture.
As you may know, 50 Cent has spent a considerable amount of 2015 dealing with bankruptcy after (among other things) being ordered to pay Rick Ross’ baby mama over a leaked sex tape. What’s been debatable during his entire time is whether or not this actually means that 50 Cent is broke; his ‘Chapter 11’ reorganisation filing seemed to be no more than a ploy to block having to pay certain debts, and the pictures of endless money continued on his social media accounts.
Well, said social media accounts (specifically, his Instagram) has finally drawn the ire of Judge Ann Nevins, who ordered 50 Cent to appear before her to, in a nutshell, explain just what the hell 50 Cent is doing (we wondered this ourselves). In addition, 50 also had to speak on his new mansion that he built in Africa…given that — as 50 claimed per bankruptcy filing — he has no money to pay creditors. His response? It’s all fake (source):
In September he took to Instagram with a video of the home with the caption, ‘My crib is almost finished in AFRICA, I’m gonna have the craziest House warming party ever. I’ll explain later. I got a good life Man.’
However, now he states in court papers: ‘I do not own, nor have I ever owned, any real property in Africa. If I did own any property in Africa or any other real properties, I would have disclosed them as required by the Bankruptcy Code.’
He also admitted that the stacks of cash he has posed with in at least four photos are fake too – that he’s just using them as props to maintain his wealthy image and rapper persona.
Yep. Even better, 50 Cent and his legal team also feels that allowing him to continue lying about his wealth can only benefit creditors. Alright.
